I travelled among unknown men

     I travelled among unknown men
          In lands beyond the sea;
     Nor, England! did I know till then
         What love I bore to thee.

     Tis past, that melancholy dream!
          Nor will I quit thy shore
     A second time; for still I seem
          To love thee more and more.

     Among thy mountains did I feel
          The joy of my desire;
     And she I cherished turned her wheel

          Beside an English fire.

     Thy mornings showed, thy nights concealed
          The bowers where Lucy played;
     And thine too is the last green field
          That Luc/s eyes surveyed.
